College Forum

NOVA's representative bodies take great pride in looking out for the best interests of their faculty, staff and students.

The College Forum represents teaching faculty, administrative faculty, classified staff and students. It is composed of:

College Senate

College Senate forms their opinions on any subject relevant to the College's interests and makes suggestions or recommendations to the appropriate College committee, officer, or Campus Council for further consideration.

Forum Councils

Each Forum Council shall serve as an instrument for the formulation and expression of faculty, student, and staff points of view college-wide, generally reserving its deliberations for questions of the campus or College Staff responsibility which are germane to the College constituencies. The Forum Council for College Staff represents all College Staff not reporting to a campus.

College Committees

College Committees oversee matters of the areas they represent. They recommend college-wide information technology policies, procedures and standards; review and recommend priorities for the development of applications and for capital requests; and serve as an information-sharing forum.
